The spotlight on the arts is now live! We are excited to bring you our annual glimpse at artistic media that flourish on and off the page. Catch up with this year’s top-10 lists for adult and youth art books. This year, Booklist contributing video reviewer Candace Smith also adds in a top-10 documentaries to engage and enlighten, and Donna Seaman curates both an in-depth core collection of black women artists and a list of read-alikes inspired by the star-reviewed What Becomes a Legend Most: The Biography of Richard Avedon, by Philip Gefter. Plus, Ronny Khuri invites one and all to the first annual Middle-School Talent Show, where you’ll be entertained by the talents of your favorite middle-grade characters.
